When is a system audit not a system audit?
When it’s a brief capture of basic information about your system with no analysis of what’s been observed, and no action plan for what to do next!
Most companies in the IT world can offer you a System Audit but the devil is in the detail. What’s the purpose of the audit? What’s the process and effort involved in conducting it? And, perhaps most importantly, what’s the valuable output from it?
If you think of it as an exercise with a specific purpose such as assessment of your back-up/recovery regime to uncover any shortcomings, then you’re starting well.
If it takes some human IT time and effort (and not just some clever auditing software) to speak to your people in order to gather information, then you’re getting some value.
And if the output produces some actionable information of real value to you then you’ve realised the true benefit of an IT Audit.
If you have a specific area of your IT network systems that you’d like to fix or improve, then give us a chance to tackle that one thing for you.
